Helping you create a message the world can see.

Posts tagged ‘inspiration’

Silicone wristbands are still one of the most popular ways to share what you’re passionate about and promote causes you believe in to people around the world. Reminderband is thrilled to have helped so many people from different walks of life and various beliefs share their messages through our wristbands. Faith has a different meaning for everyone, and with that understanding, we’d like to feature a topic that has continued to grow in popularity: using silicone wristbands for faith.

Where to Start:

There is a wealth of pre-made silicone bracelets including WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?) and many other popular scripture verses and inspirational phrases. Another huge hit is the Philippians 4:13 wristband, which includes the engraving “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. These wristbands are affordable and comfortable to wear either longterm or just for an event. They’re perfect for a simple but impactful daily reminder and morale boost.

If you’re looking to fine-tune the message and make it especially personal to you, your family, or group ministry and congregation, check out the personalized wristbands and design your own.

Still need ideas? Whether it’s for personal use or groups and events, there is a myriad of ideas for using rubber bracelets for religious purposes.

Top 5 Ways to Use Silicone Bracelets for Your Faith:

1. Daily Reminders or Personal Motivators

It can be hard to remember what’s most important during your busy day; however, a religious wristband can serve as a gentle reminder to live according to your faith. When life gets rough, a little nudge to keep going and “endure to the end” can help motivate you to make the best decisions (Matthew 24:13). Both sides of the wristband can be customized, giving you plenty of space to engrave your favorite messages.

Other inspirational quotes and motivational phrases can also be used. Whether it’s a simple phrase like “Do Hard Things”, or a quote you love, such as “Every moment is a fresh beginning” (T.S. Eliot), you can add whatever helps you to strive to be your best.

2. Group Activity Wristbands

If you’re part of a ministry or church congregation, it’s common to have activities themed around a specific quote or scripture. Using silicone wristbands for those events makes for an elegant and affordable solution to make the event a success. With everyone wearing matching wristbands, the group will feel even more united. Even after the activity is over, attendees will still remember the experience and the memories they had when they see their wristband.

3. Youth Camps

Like group activities, youth camps for youth ministry, scouting, or just plain old fun can also benefit from using custom or faith-based wristbands. Silicone bracelets can be used to identify different groups at a camp as well as memorialize the experience and serve as a fun souvenir for the kids. See how one such Christian-based camp is using wristbands to elevate the camp experience here.

4. Gifts

Silicone wristbands make great gifts among friends, family, and other church members. Whether they’re given out as a holiday or neighbor gift, a birthday gift, or a “just because” gift, people everywhere appreciate the thoughtful nature of a personalized wristband. This applies in any case, but a message of faith can be especially heartwarming to a friend or neighbor who is going through a hard time.

5. Fundraisers

Need a great way to raise money without breaking the bank? Rubber wristbands can be designed and purchased in bulk at a better per-band price, which makes them an excellent fundraising option. Wearing a wristband with a well-known quote or scripture verse is an easy way for people to incorporate their faith into their lifestyle, and promote a wholesome cause through donating via your fundraiser. You’ll be able to fund your activity, camp, or other church efforts in no time by reselling these easy-to-design custom wristbands!

Reminderband Customers Who Love Their Wristbands of Faith

We receive a lot of feedback about how our customers are using their wristbands, and we love to hear those stories. Here are just a few that make us proud:

  • One Amazon customer says about his WWJD wristband: “I love this wristband and get a lot of questions [about] what it stands for. It is a great motivation for me and gives me a visual when I need a little reminder.”
  • Carla T. from CA says “I have been ordering from this company for years. Great quality!! This is a way I advertise the word of God through scripture.”
  • Melissa S. from TX says “I love the friendly service and quality of bands. This is the second time using [these] for my nephew’s fundraiser at our church and we are still happy with [the] product.”

Canines-n-Kids used Reminderband wristbands as a giveaway to participants at their “Paws for a Cure Summit” last summer in Washington, DC, and at their first annual “Two by Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer” in October of 2017, in Brambleton, VA.

Man’s Best Friend Is A Kid’s Best Friend in Cancer
Most people don’t realize that both children and dogs develop several cancers in common including bone cancer, brain cancer, lymphoma, and leukemia.

Canines-N-Kids Foundation states:  “16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year.  With only three new kids’ cancer drugs in 20 years, there is little money behind new drugs; only 4% of NIH’s budget goes to pediatric oncology.  Some 4,000,000 dogs in the US are diagnosed with cancer. 50% of all dogs over the age of ten die from their disease and treatment options are limited for man’s best friend.”

Through treating cancer in dogs, we can better learn how to help children with those same cancers.  A cure for one aids in curing the other.

Do you need to share a message that stays with people and leaves an impact?

25881842_atkins_devay_and_crowd.jpeg

Devay Campbell is a career coach and business mentor who wants to do just that. She is hosting a Classroom to Career tour to “empower students and equip them with the knowledge they need to get hired and be successful in their careers.” Her plan is to be able to reach one thousand students for the 2017-18 school year.

Devay has designed her own wristbands with a message she hopes will inspire students to remain ambitious and to continue to pursue what they want out of their lives and careers.

unnamed-10.png

She plans to use them to promote her message and serve as a tangible reminder to “always dream no matter what.”

“After so long, we think it is too late.” Says Devay, “We all need a reminder that it is never too late to follow and achieve our dreams. I want to leave this message behind with the students!”

We love this idea and we wish Devay the very best of luck in her tour. To learn more, visit her Facebook page. Want to be featured in our next Feature Friday? Send us an email about what you’re doing with your cause or event, as well as any pictures you’d like us to use.

Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. YSC offers resources, connections, and outreach so women feel supported, empowered and hopeful.

The YSC was founded in 1998 by three women who were each under age 35 at the time of their diagnosis. Discouraged by the scarcity of resources and awareness of young women with breast cancer, so they formed an alliance through which they could make an impact.

YSC has three charity bike rides each year: one in each of the South, East, and West Coasts. This event, the Tour de Pink (TdP) is “an inspiring three-day charity bike ride, with a one-day option, that raises funds for young women affected by breast cancer.”

These rides are completely equipped with the proper furnishings of bike and motorcycle marshals, vehicle support, and plenty of rest stops. They also have lodging and meals for the three-day riders, who commit to raising $2,500 each.

Rachel Kelley, a three-day rider in the YSC Tour de Pink West Coast, will be selling the wristbands to contribute to her fundraising efforts. All proceeds from her wristbands will be donated to YSC through her fundraising page, here.

Looking to jazz up your upcoming event but need ideas? Or do you just love our gorgeous Tyvek wristbands, but need a good reason to design some? Here are four awesome ideas for Tyvek bracelets to get you started:

1. Parties or Celebrations

Since clowns seem to be on the outs these days, one of the best ways to amp up a small (or large) party is to design your very own Tyvek bands for ultimate swag effect. Whether it’s for a sweet sixteen bash or a rowdy graduation party, these make for a colorful, and unique handout for everyone to wear at the shindig.

IMG_2351.JPG

Choose from one of our templates and backgrounds, or design your own and upload that magic yourself! Planning for a small group? No problem. We have the lowest minimums anywhere; order just one wristband, if you like! (Invite a friend, though, because a solo party sounds sad.)

2. Concerts and Performances

Want to get the word out about an upcoming performance?  Whether you’re just promoting an event, or using Tyvek for entry tickets and identification, the possibilities are nonstop.

IMG_2350.JPG

 

Tyvek bands can be used to great effect here, and they even double as tickets, with bar codes and sequential numbering offered as an option to add to your design.tyvek_concert2.a82e75e8a953 (1).png

tyvek_concert3.3c5ada89cdfc (1).png

Not for a big venue? That’s okay! These are great for local shows, school performances, a battle of the bands, or even little Rachel’s piano recital.

Creating the perfect design is half the fun!

3. Festivals and Fairs

Are you in charge of helping to run the local Rennesaince fair? Helping with the County Fair, or local city Festival? Do away with those ugly plain old bracelets and use Tyvek wristbands to make your ticket/entry bracelet into a piece of art. These make for a great advertisement along with a way to identify patrons.

We’ve got oodles of font and artwork options, so be sure to play around with your design until it really pops!

4. Fundraisers and Awareness

True to our roots, we offer excellent design options for putting on a fundraiser for just about anything, or to raise awareness in your community, or across the country. Unlimited options are at your disposal to strike the perfect chord for an ongoing fundraiser, or a one-night event. Make your message loud and clear!

Need them fast? We’ve got speedy production and shipping options available, and we’ll bend over backward to make your wristbands for your event on time. Still unclear? Check out our events page, shoot us an email, give us a call, or hit us up on social media. We’re always happy to chat!

Until next time!

Since 1949, the United States has observed Mental Health Awareness Month as a way to encourage education, awareness, and outreach resources across multiple outlets and organizations.RK_Green.pngThe oft-associated green ribbon serves as a reminder and a symbol of support for those suffering from mental illness, as well as a way for organizations to share a message of compassion and understanding for such conditions. Those organizations also serve as advocates to offer resources and to mitigate the stigma often tied to mental illness. From suicide prevention to many other causes, groups of people across the United States are working to further their causes.

We have made ribbons, wristbands, and keychains for many such occasions here at Reminderband. Thank you to all those who are working to help one another!

Today’s feature focuses on a writer whose books are part of a mission to stop bullying.

11-year-old Brenden Santos has published not one, but three books to date.

BS-2.jpg

 

Says Santos, “I have a few missions in life and I have a campaign against bullying.” Santos began working on his three books at age ten and has since created a website, www.againstthebullying.com.

 

To help spread his message, Santos has distributed wristbands among the community, sharing the essence of his campaign “only one me”. He has been making some waves with his progress, and recently met and had dinner with the Lt. Governer of North Carolina.

Santos has big plans for the future of his anti-bullying campaign:

“I am trying to get bully awareness to be one day in August and one day in September because when school starts is when bullying is at its peak.
I want everyone to wear my wrist bands and look at them and remember there’s only one me and that means you.”

You can learn more about Brenden’s mission against bullying and his books at his website.

Santos plans to continue his efforts with his writing and sharing his mantra: “I hope that one day I can have enough money so that I can buy millions of wristbands as I would like to give them away free to everyone in the world so that not only children but also adults who get bullied can remember we all matter.”

We wish Brenden and his cause the very best of luck!

Alexis Teixeira was diagnosed with Lupus at age 14 and has fought for many years through testing and treatments to get proper help. When she was eventually married, she was currently receiving exams but developed preeclampsia after becoming pregnant with their daughter Gianna. Lupus played a part in her high-risk pregnancy and Gianna was born prematurely.

Thankfully, Gianna is doing quite well and is almost four-years-old. Alexis’ husband Luis saw the need for a great deal of awareness that Lupus just wasn’t getting; so he took matters into his own hands. Since his epiphany, Luis has used his rally driving career as a way to promote better awareness for Lupus. His race team Wicked Nasty Motorsports took to representing Lupus awareness (purple) in their team colors. This has allowed the whole family to share the message of awareness and the struggles of Lupus with many, many others.

25876135_mx_476.png

“So often we overlook the loved ones of those suffering from Lupus who are living through the difficult experiences with them.”

Alexis says her husband’s efforts to raise awareness is a good example for the community, and that everyone can help.

Part of their campaign to raise awareness includes handing out Reminderband wristbands at the racing events, which have been designed with the Wicked Nasty Motorsports logo along with “Lupus Awareness”.

If you would like to learn more about Lupus, head over to lupus.org.

We wish Alexis and her family all the best and we thank them for sharing their story with us!

Abri was just eight years old when she was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, on September 4, 2015. After a year of brutal treatment and limb salvage surgery, she is now six months in remission.

 

The folks behind supporting Abri, her Team Abri facebook page, and others affected by childhood cancer have designed their very own wristband to spread Abri’s message. This band shares the prayer that she prays every night:

We love Abri’s message and we wish her and all others facing the devastation of childhood cancer the best of luck!

To learn more about Abri’s story and about others who are battling cancer, head over to their facebook page, here.
